WARNING: COULD SCARE THE LIVING HEART OUT OF YOUR THROAT!!!
The original ‘Blair Witch’ appeared on the scene in 1999. The premise revolved around the finding of reels of film in a tent in ‘The Woods’ where the disappearance of the filmmakers occurred. What is seen on the film are the experiences. The fear and terror led the original film makers to a mysterious ending inside a scary building. Something terrible happened there. The ending of the footage is the most frightening part of the film.
After watching the trailer for the updated version of ‘Blair Witch’, I discovered it isn’t really a remake. Instead it revolves around a group of college students out to discover what exactly happened to the original film group. The new version involves lots of screaming. Scared. Not Yet. I intend to watch this film. The first made a fortune, though I felt it lacked the realism. I didn’t feel scared for them until the end. ‘Blair Witch’ (2016) may lead us to some answers or may make more students disappear with the others. I still want to know what happened. It is a genuine curiosity to want to know. Especially, if it has to do with Evil. One should always know if Evil is near by. – j.kiley ps. And one of the first group to disappear may be the sister of one in the new group. Odd thing though, 20 years have passed. I want to hear the explanation on how they could be siblings. It could happen but seems kind of strange. Just saying???
Blair Witch (2016)
A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined. (Film released statement)
